10. The decision

10.1 Within Redcar & Cleveland, there are two categories of decision on planning and related applications:
  • those delegated by the Planning Committee to Officers.
  • those made by the Planning Committee

10.2 Planning Policy decisions are generally made by Full Council

10.3 In instances where the decision is made at Committee, or Full Council, officers will prepare a full and structured report setting out the relevant points and in the case of applications, the development plan policies, site or related history and other material considerations including any representations made in respect of the application. The officers report will include a clear recommendation.

10.4 The law requires that decisions should be made in accordance with the Development Plan unless material considerations indicate otherwise S 38(6) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004). Where Members make a decision contrary to officer recommendation, Members will clearly specify the planning reason(s) for that decision and these will be minuted.
